The winners of the CMA Awards are determined by voting members of the Country Music Association, like Pat James, who voted for Taylor as Entertainer of the Year.
CMT commissioned its annual poll using a random sample of 1,000 country music fans over the age of 18. The CMT poll predicts Swift to win female vocalist honors, the album of the year trophy for Fearless and the top prize — entertainer of the year.
Poll results also project George Strait to be named male vocalist of the year and Rascal Flatts to win in the vocal group category. It also predicts “I Told You So” the Carrie Underwood hit written by Randy Travis, will be named song of the year. Although it’s not an official CMA category, Underwood was declared the female artist with the best red carpet style when fans were polled by CMT.
ABC will broadcast the CMA Awards show live from Nashville’s Sommet Center on Nov. 11. WATCH AS THE CORNBREAD SHOW ACCEPTS OUR AWARD FOR MAJOR MARKET PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR!
